Edward Weston nudes : his photographs accompanied by excerpts from the Daybooks & letters by Edward Weston( Book )

13 editions published between 1977 and 1993 in English and held by 707 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the present volume, Charis draws upon her experiences as both model and partner to offer a uniquely informed remembrance not only of Weston's nudes-which comprise the largest single category of his output-but also of the man himself. Of her first encounter with Weston's photographs of the nude, Charis writes: "Nothing could have been farther from 'Art Poses' than Edward's nudes, and I was fascinated by their strong individuality as body portraits. At first I had the same trouble with the peppers, dead birds, and eroded planks-I couldn't get past the simple amazement at how real they were. Then I began to see the rhythmic patterns, the intensely perceived sculptural forms, the subtle modulations of tone, of which these small, perfect images were composed. And I began to appreciated the originality of the viewpoint that had selected just these transitory moments and made them fast against the current of time. Edward Weston...the most highly revered of photographers ... his nude photographs emerge in fugues of craft and insight neither nude nor naked but filled with life"--Jacket flap

Tina Modotti & Edward Weston : the Mexico years by Sarah M Lowe( Book )

4 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 441 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Tina Modotti and Edward Weston arrived in Mexico in 1923 at the start of an extraordinary period of artistic creativity that became known as the Mexican Renaissance. The book traces the interwoven lives and work of Modotti and Weston from the early 1920's in Los Angeles, where they met, until the 1930's, focusing in detail on their time together in Mexico, where virtually all of Modotti's photographs were taken. In bringing together for the first time close to 150 photographs by Modotti and Weston, it reveals the distinctive responses to Mexico of two photographers from widely different backgrounds. At the same time, like other Modernists in Mexico, these two artists self-consciously created work that broke wholly with the immediate past, and fashioned an idiom in defiance of traditional ideas. A selection of images by two Mexican photographers, Manuel Alvarez Bravo and Mariana Yampolsky, reveals how indigenous photography was influenced by these two foreigners

Edward Weston : photography and modernism by Theodore E Stebbins( Book )

6 editions published in 1999 in English and German and held by 385 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This third and culminating volume in the Boston Museum of Fine Arts' outstanding series on Edward Weston (1886-1958) examines the greatest works of Weston's career, his stylistic development, and especially the ways in which he responded to contemporary modernists. Comparative illustrations of work by Picasso, Brancusi, O'Keeffe, Diego Rivera, Henrietta Shore, and other artists provide a better understanding of these influences. Following an introduction by Theodore Stebbins, three sections of photographs with accompanying essays demonstrate the entire range of Weston's work: his work as a pictorialist before 1920; experimental portraits, landscapes, and still lifes from the Mexican Period; his landmark still lifes of shells and peppers; small-format portraiture and fragmentary nudes; the classic "high modernist" series of nudes and dunes from the 1930s; and his late abstract landscapes. Included are brilliant prints of Weston's most famous images, including Pepper 30, Excusado, and Palma Cuernavaca, as well as numerous unfamiliar photographs that broaden our understanding of this great photographer."--Jacket

Edward Weston : photographs from the J. Paul Getty Museum by Brett Abbott( Book )

8 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 376 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The biography of the photographer Edward Weston (American, 1886-1958) is full of colorful vignettes of the sort that enliven popular accounts of an artist's life. The singular pursuit of aesthetic ideals (and the resulting financial hardships); the marriages, divorces, and affairs; the early onset of a debilitating illness - all punctuate most Weston histories. However, what remains at the core of any examination of the photographer's career is his body of work, which includes signature images that are among the finest in the medium." "In 2003 the Getty Museum, which holds a collection of about 240 Weston prints, hosted a colloquium on the photographer. This volume in the In Focus series records remarks by the author, Brett Abbott, along with those of six other participants: William Clift, Amy Conger, David Featherstone, Weston Naef, David Travis, and Jennifer Watts. Context for their conversation is provided by the author's introduction, plate texts, and chronology. Approximately fifty of Weston's images demonstrate why his work continues to resonate with a contemporary public and serves as a model for a host of photographers active today."--Jacket

The model wife by Arthur Ollman( Book )

1 edition published in 1999 in English and held by 268 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"With provocative photographs by some of the best-known photographers of the past century, The Model Wife is a striking and original book about the place where marriage and photography converge. Friends, lovers, confidantes, collaborators -- the multifaceted relationship between husband and wife takes on another dimension when the couple are also artist and muse. In The Model Wife, Arthur Ollman explores the imagery and photographic history of nine twentieth-century photographers who portrayed their wives over a period of years. He delves into issues of marriage itself and the powerful influences that such a partnership can have on artistic production. Comparisons between the couples and the resulting photographs enrich this discussion."--
Supreme instants : the photography of Edward Weston by Edward Weston( Book )

12 editions published in 1986 in English and Undetermined and held by 78 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume of photographs commemorates the centennial of Weston's birth. It is notable because it contains seldom-seen early work as well as obscure color work done late in his career. The early work, mostly soft focus portraits, shares little with the clean, sharp style and carefully observed forms for which he is renowned. The essay by eminent photo historian Newhall is essentially a biographical sketch, particularly interesting for anecdotes of Newhall's experiences working with Weston. The authoritative work on Weston, however, continues to be Edward Weston: seventy photographs by Ben Maddow. For larger collections." Frank Schroth, Library Journal
